Police in missing man appeal

POLICE are appealing for the public’s help in the search for a man who has gone missing.

On Tuesday evening a 63 year old Asian male went missing from the Runswick Bay area.

He is of slim build, 6ft tall, with thinning receding black hair and moustache going grey, possibly wearing spectacles and believed to be wearing a tweed sports jacket and carrying a pair of binoculars.

North Yorkshire Police are very concerned for the welfare of this man and request all owners of land or property within a mile radius of Staithes make a physical check of their land and property in an effort to locate him.

Any sightings or information such as the finding of discarded binoculars or a tweed sports jacket should be reported immediately to police on 0845 60 60 247.
